Sharing "Product" devices via Particle iOS App

I have created a product with three Photon devices in the product console. I have invited two co-workers to the product and they have accepted their invites. How do I provide them with access to those devices via the Particle iOS app? It seems they can log into the Console and see the product and devices but when they log into the iOS app they do not see those same devices.

What do you want your co-workers to be able to do?

The Particle iOS app is built to handle a single Particle account. You cannot access “shared” devices or products using the app.

They are in the field deploying the solution we created. I would like them to be able to view the published variables, manipulate the functions, etc from the mobile app. Something I currently do in the lab as we are building and testing.

Unfortunately this cannot be done with product devices using the Particle Tinker app. For products we expect product creators to roll their own implementations to view product devices, read variables, and call functions.

I spent a few minutes hours tonight updating my personal dashboard project to support products. Give it a try:

  1. Go to the dashboard
  2. Login with the following format: accesstoken::product_slug. Your access token can be any access token from a user on the same “team” as your product. If you want to view your personal devices omit the ::product_slug part.
  3. You can signal the device, look at variable values (you have to refresh the page to update), and call device functions.

It’s super rough but it should work for testing purposes. Let me know if you have any issues.

That looks like it could do what we need. We will give it a shot. Thanks for taking the time to make this available!
